51. Robots to the Rescue
Topic: Robotics
Published: 6/30/2009
Author: Elena R Messina
Abstract: Despite current limitations, robots can still play a significant role in helping the response community by being their eyes and ears in dangerous, unknown, or difficult-to-access locations. This article describes how the National Institute of Stan ...

52. Advancing Manufacturing Research Through Competitions
Topic: Robotics
Published: 4/17/2009
Authors: Stephen B. Balakirsky, Rajmohan Madhavan
Abstract: Competitions provide a technique for building interest and collaboration in targeted research areas. This paper will present a new competition that aims to increase collaboration amongst Universities, automation end-users, and automation manufacturer ...

Topic: Robotics
Published: 8/7/2008
Authors: Stephen B. Balakirsky, Frederick M Proctor, Christopher J. Scrapper Jr, Thomas Rollin Kramer
Abstract: In order to expedite the research and development of robotic systems and foster development of novel robot configuration, is it essential to develop tools and standards that allow researchers to rapidly develop, communicate, and compare experimental ...

54. Absolute Refractive Indices and Thermal Coefficients of CaF^d2^, SrF^d2^, BaF^d2^, and LiF Near 157 nm
Topic: Robotics
Published: 5/1/2002
Authors: Ulf Griesmann, J H Burnett, R Gupta
Abstract: We present accurate measurements near 157 nm of the absolute index of refraction, the index dispersion, and the temperature dependence of the index, for the cubic-symmetry, ultraviolet optical materials CaF^d2^, SrF^d2^, BaF^d2^, and LiF. Accurate va ...

55. Texture-Independent Vision-Based Closed-Loop Fuzzy Controllers for Navigation Tasks
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5637
Topic: Robotics
Published: 4/1/1995
Authors: S R Kundur, Daniel Raviv
Abstract: This paper deals with vision-based closed-loop control schemes for collision avoidance as well as maintenance of clearance in a-priori unknown textured environments. These control schemes are based on fuzzy logic and employ a visual motion cue, we ...
